Belem is not just a beautiful, 120-year-old three-masted tall ship, but she is also classed as a historic monument.
The barque started life transporting sugar from the West Indies and cocoa and coffee from South America to Nantes, while previous owners include the second Duke of Westminster, who converted her in to a luxury yacht, and beer baron Sir Arthur Guinness who sailed her around the world.
During her sea-going life she has escaped both volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
